Great Gulf, an international award-winning developer, brings its Canadian know-how to the nation’s U.S. capital as the first Canadian company to break ground in D.C.’s vibrant Union Market District. Attended by local government officials, Canadian Embassy representatives and special guests, the event marked a significant milestone in Great Gulf’s expansion into the U.S. market.
“We chose Union Market in the heart of Washington, D.C. because it’s an opportunity to establish Great Gulf as a development company of choice in a significant American city and participate in the transformation of a diverse and thriving community,” says Niall Collins, president Residential Great Gulf. “We are deeply committed to community building and delighted we will be contributing to the integrity of the neighbourhood while supporting local employment.”
“Union Market District is about establishing and honouring authentic relationships with our neighbours. Partnering with Great Gulf – our Canadian neighbour to the north – felt like the perfect partnership, as they are one of North America’s premiere developers and share our values of building community,” says EDENS CEO Jodie McLean.
This Union Market District project with co-developer EDENS, a nationally leading retail real estate owner, operator and developer, is a 10-storey mixed-use, multi-family development at 1300 4th Street NE, adjacent to the two-time Michelin star restaurant Masseria.

“This exciting project is another example of a leading Canadian company making a long-term commitment to the dynamic and growing D.C. Metro area,” sys Jason LaTorre, Minister-Counsellor and Senior Trade Commissioner, Embassy of Canada.
